Nicaragua is preparing to officially recognize South Ossetia and Abkhazia, Nicaraguan officials said on Thursday.

"We have started preparing all the necessary documentation for an official recognition of Abkhazia and South Ossetia following instructions issued by the president," Nicaraguan Deputy Foreign Minister Manuel Coronel Kautz has said as cited by Ria Novosti.

"Nicaragua recognizes the independence of S. Ossetia and Abkhazia and fully supports the Russian government's position," President Daniel Ortega previously declared.

Nicaragua would become the first country after Russia to recognize the two republics as independent states.

Western nations have strongly criticized Russia for its "disproportionate" response to Georgia's attack on South Ossetia and the subsequent recognition of the breakaway provinces.
